It can be overwhelming trying to find a good hotel apartment or serviced rental for your short trip to London, especially because the best ones are often exclusive to certain agents. So if you want to rent short term and best buildings, it’s best to talk to a residential letting agent who specializes in London.

Before You Book

In addition to all the basic rental requirements and specifics, you need to know (rental rates, minimum stay requirements, etc.) you also need to learn about certain policies that your provider might have, especially about children, pets, smoking, and similar things. Many apartment rentals have no problem with children; in fact, they welcome families, but they might have strict rules when it comes to bringing your pets along or having you smoke in the house or within the premises. It is best to clarify any rules against these rental aspects when considering rentals.

Book in advance via your agent or provider if you want to get the best rental choices for your travel date. While apartments are often available on short notice, you don't want to settle for less than what you want and need for your travel purposes. Reserve your flat at least a few weeks or months before your travel date to get the best options (and the best deals).

Don’t Forget to Ask

When finalizing your hotel apartment rental, ask about payment and cancellation policies as well as the charges you may incur should you decide to cancel your reservation or change the date of your visit.

Ask about cleaning fees, service charges, and other rental and service details to make sure you don't pay extra for things you don't actually need. One of the best things about serviced hotel apartments is that they provide regular maid service. Though you may not get fresh towels delivered every day, you still come home to a clean, uncluttered apartment, thanks to regular housekeeping.

Lastly, ask about extension policies for your short term let. Rental agents and providers are more flexible when it comes to extended stays. Just make sure you know their policies for extending your stay, as well as the fees involved.

Get Professional Help

With a professional letting agent, you no longer have to worry about these details. These property managers can take care of all the nitty-gritty; all you need to do is move in.
